We're getting down to the last of the Devlin Family Disneyland photos - there are just a few left from the 1980's. But never fear, there are more photos from other parks to keep us going for a while.
Meanwhile here are the final few from January 1965 (probably mis-dated as I believe that they are earlier than that). This first one is unusual in that it shows one of the Frontierland Indians (in a rather spectacular costume) hanging out in Town Square! Truthfully he might have been standing right beneath the Frontierland sign, but still, it looks a little anachronistic.
He and "Mama" appear to be having a friendly conversation, probably about cookie recipes. That's what grandmas always talk about, right? Or he is telling her that he has a Master's degree in Business Administration.
We're still in Town Square, and the Disneyland Band has made a surprise appearance. You probably know them by now, but from left to right we have Devlin family members Mary Jo, "Ama", Mama, and Grandad. The bag that Grandad is holding is suspiciously "souvenir guide book" sized!
Thanks as always to the Devlin Family for sharing these great photos.
Hey, GDB readers... once again, I will be going out of town for a few days. As always I will check in as often as I can, to respond to comments and generally make a nuisance of myself. I'll return on Sunday!
